BAD COMPANY InTheStudio FOR 40th ANNIVERSARY

Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke Discuss Reunion, Tour And 40 Years Of Rock’n’Roll Fantasies

Dallas, TX – JUNE 27, 2013.

North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands gives you a front row ticket to Bad Company’s 40th anniversary festivities. Formed in 1973 from the members of British bands Free and Mott the Hoople, Bad Company were a supergroup in the making and the first signing to Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song label. In an industry where anticipation and expectations can often derail bands from the start, Bad Company would rise to the occasion, delivering hit albums and producing one of the most memorable catalogs of ‘70s rock. Hits like “Can’t Get Enough”, “Movin’ On”, “Feel Like Making Love”, “Rock’n’Roll Fantasy”,  “Ready for Love”, “Shooting Star”,”Silver Blue and Gold” would fast become staples on the radio and in the concert halls. InTheStudio host Redbeard sat down with Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke during rehearsals for this Summer’s 40th anniversary tour to discuss the band’s legacy. During the interview, Paul Rodgers reveals what music inspired the members of Bad Company.

”The records we listened to, when we were getting turned on to music, were actually 40 years old, you know, Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf and Albert King and all these guys. We were listening to quite old music, but to us it was eternal music. I can still listen to it now. I think we took something from that. And that’s probably part of what we do.”

Mick Ralphs explains what touring with Bad Company over forty years means to him.

“It’s good. It keeps you on your toes, nothing set in stone. We have a great collection of songs, fortunately for us, that people want to hear.” 

Catch this special two part- two week InTheStudio program and be sure to see Bad Company this Summer with co-headliner Lynyrd Skynyrd as both bands celebrate their 40th anniversaries.

Check out this two part InTheStudio w/ Redbeard syndicated radio special celebrating Bad Company’s 40th Anniversary feat. brand new interviews with Paul, Mick & Simon.
